13th Hour Magazine are geared purely at entertaining the
reader. The Face To Face Celebrity Interview is one of these
sections. Who doesnt like reading an interview with

It seems that each year, the industry is introduced to more
and more new products. Companies are utilizing new technology
that has taken haunted house props to an amazing new level.
An industry that was once dominated by horribly unrealistic
masks has now reached a level where a person wearing a mask
could hold a conversation with some one that would never
even know the person they are talking to is wearing a mask.
As technology continues to progress, products become more
imaginative and realistic. 13th Hour Magazine recognizes
these new products in the Latest And Greatest Products section.
Be sure to check out this section in each issue to see the
hottest new products on the market.
Products are not the only things new in the haunt industry.
New companies that supply to haunted attractions are emerging
as well. 13th Hour Magazine pays tribute to these entrepreneurs
in the section New Ventures.
While featuring people who are new to the haunt society,
13th Hour Magazine also understands that the industry has
a rich and interesting history. In our regular section,
Crypt Keeper, we feature a prominent person within the haunt
industry. We introduce you to the person behind the haunter,
show you the ups and downs of their career, successes and
failures, and of course, we remind you what makes this person
important to the industry. These are the people that have
paved the way for the new haunters and continue to carve
the path of the industry.
